Former Global Brand Head Of Mars Shares Leadership lessons From A 30-Year Career In New Book

Do you need to be right all the time? Your team probably hates you if so. That’s the message from Hamish Thomson, former global brand head of Mars who explores what actually drives performance in his new book, It’s Not Always Right to Be Right (Wiley $29.99).

Drawing upon a 30-year global marketing career, Thomson, who in addition to his Mars role was a senior marketing and sales lead for Reebok International in the UK, explains that effective leadership transformation ultimately comes from humility, compromise and connection and outlines a shareable framework to help drive change in individuals, teams and organisations. Written in a casual, autobiographical style, Hamish shares the key experiences and hard-won lessons that enabled him to drive significant change when all the right ways of doing things didn’t work.

Asked why now was the time to write the book, Thomson said: “I know it sounds like a cliché, but ‘if I knew then what I know now’ I would have been so much better: more capable, more confident, potentially more successful and, most importantly, infinitely happier. So that’s why I’ve written this book. If my insights help readers to be just that much more self-assured and self-equipped for business success, then surely it’s a good thing.”

Published internationally through Wiley and packed with fascinating true stories, tools, and commentary from 17 leading international business experts, It’s Not Always Right to Be Right is an essential guide for those looking to improve performance and drive meaningful change.
